Let's have a look to the future with new pictures of awaited attractions/lands, which appeared recently on Disney fans web sites. The first picture above, coming from the chinese takungpao.com web site show the future Toy Story Playland opening this summer at the Walt Disney Studios - and next year at Hong Kong Disneyland.
The attraction in the foreground is of course the "Parachute Drop" attraction with its military base theming for the queue decor. Right behind it, the "Slinky Dog Zig-Zag Spin" ride and the "RC Racer" half-pipe coaster.
The next one below - from the WDS Fans web site show the same land on a different angle. As you can see the queue line of "Slinky Dog Zig-Zag Spin" will be inside a giant toy box which, i must say, is a brilliant idea.
I'm not expecting too much from this Toy Story Playland but if WDI Imagineers succeed to create a nice theming - and i'm sure they will - it can be a nice addition to the WDS. My main concern is the visual intrusion problem with the tower of the "Parachute Drop" and the half-pipe track of the "RC Coaster". I don't doubt that WDI Imagineers are aware of the problem, so let's hope that we won't see this tower and track when we'll get out of the Studio 1 and even from the small Holywood Boulevard.
Edited: Don't miss new pictures of Toy Story Playland model posted in my new article HERE.
This last model picture - click on it to see it in big size - was released two days ago by the Stitch Kingdom web site. It shows the highly-awaited new Fantasyland at WDW Magic Kingdom and the main changes from the Greg Pro rendering released last September are on the Pixie hollow area. The renderings shows a giant tree which has disappeared in the model. Big mistake, if you want my point of view. the rest of the land looks like on the artwork and apparently - thanks god! - no changes were done on the Little mermaid area.
The Global Disney Pinvestigation site has posted today a great update about all this, you can read it HERE
